Experience

I switched to the mini pill after suffering from reoccurring UTIs on the combined pill. It’s been great having no periods or menstrual symptoms but my skin has really suffered. I get frequent breakouts (the reason I started the contraceptive pill in the first place). I’ve also noticed that I often feel low, lazy and unmotivated which I didn’t before. I’m planning on making a GP appointment to discuss other options.
